Three police officers tested positive for drugs at Stereosonic; dealer faces criminal charges in death of Sylvia Choi
Tragedy struck the Australian electronic music community when Sylvia Choi collapsed at Sydney Olympic Park last Saturday during Stereosonic Music Festival, and died later at Concord Hospital around 9:30pm. She is suspected to have combined ecstasy with another unknown substance, in water, before falling ill. Daniel Huynh, 25, has been charged for selling Sylvia Choi one “yellow snapchat’ pill and one cap of MDMA.
According to a reddit thread, yellow snapchats are “highly sought after.” However, most users recommend only taking half, indicating that “there’s a break line for a reason.” Daniel Huynh also warned Sylvia in advance of the pressed pill’s potency, giving her advice on how to properly consume the pill via WhatsApp ahead of Stereosonic’s arrival. He is charged with two counts of drug supply, and was denied bail.
Meanwhile, in a strange turn of events, three police officers present at the festival tested positive for ecstasy and meth after supervisors caught wind that some staff were indulging while on duty.
Despite the results, the officers will not be charged because they were not caught in possession of any substances.
